Piece sets


Playing chess in the club continues via email.

Some of the players in the club uses the graphical format below to receive their opponents' moves. Others use plain text messages, others use PGN.

This page is for those who use the html message format, instead of plain text and PGN. (These settings can be changed anytime by the players). For players using the html format, the server generates the changed game diagram after each move in html format.
Using an html compliant email client or web service is necessary to use this feature. All the modern email clients support displaying standard html messages. Players who use an email client that doesn't support html message format won't be able to use this feature. They receive their opponents' moves, or whole games in plain text or in PGN format instead of the graphical boards. They may need a different software to display the boards. For example ECTool is a right software for them.

Players can choose which piece set they want to use in their graphical boards generated by the chess server.

King Shehran and Sessa ebn Daher

As the tail says there was a king in India, called Shehran, dominating on everything, but his tedium. He was bored in the morning, noon and at night, all every day, until he fell ill because of it.

Sessa ebn Daher, his court wise man, to heal the king, invented a new game, called it chess. The game was brilliant, the king has recovered from the illnes after the first game.

- What do you want as a reward? - asked Shehran.

- A few grains of wheat only: put one grain on the first square of the chessboard, then double it on the next squares - said Sessa ebn Daher.

- Humble request! - smiled the king, but finally couldn't perform it.

The number of the wheat grains was 18 trillion, 446 billiard, 744 billion, 73 milliard 709 million, 551 thousand 615, which is approximately 700 thousand million tonnes.
 
PGN Format

The PGN format is a standard way to describe a chess game.
It contains players' data such as names, ratings, country codes, the date, and site of the game, and contains the moves also that have been taken in the game, and the result of the game also.
The game can be in progress too, in this case its result is "*", later it usually changes to "1-0", "0-1" or "1/2-1/2".
Please find the detailed description of the PGN format here.
The server understands the PGN format, it can send and receive moves in this format.

Many softwares use this format to exchange games, those too which are used by correspondence chess players to play their games, such as ECTool, or Mailchess (more on the Links page).
